This place is really close to a 5, but the bottom line is the cost and food quality don't quite get it there. The staff was friendly and prompt. The location is a little off the beaten path, but the view was amazing. The establishment was clean and well appointed. The crab dip obviously did have crab in it, but... More

We selected this restaurant for a special anniversary dinner. First they were going to seat us beside the speakers for the guitar player, we asked for a quieter table. We got a quieter table (but the acoustics of the room are still not great for dining). We placed our appetizer order and waited quite a while for the bread, even... More

We have not eaten at Back Creek for awhile. I am writing the review because I don't think folks should be taken in by all of the "wonderful" reviews that are listed. We went for dinner as a family and we had a reservation. They lost our reservation and we sat at a very small, hot table for four people.... More

Our large group of 20 friends was challenged getting to Solomons Island by extreme weather in early July, 2014. Owner Richard did his very best to work with us to during the busy 4th of July weekend to insure we had a place to dine at the end of our cruise. All agreed that their dishes were expertly prepared and... More

This place is off the beaten path but arguably has the best atmosphere and view in Solomons. Great food and they do live music some nights. A really good place to take and impress a date.

Atmosphere is upper scale, cloth napkins and ambient lighting; food is fine dining with continental flair; service hoever was slow, understaffed for a busy Saturday night

My boyfriend and I took my mom to Back Creek Bistro for Mother's Day. The menu is varied, with plenty of seafood options, and there were several enticing specials for the holiday. I ordered Champagne Scallops, and my dish was the best among our party. Cooked to perfection with a savory sauce, the scallops were to-die for! The service was... More

We went to this restaurant at 8:30 and they aren't supposed to close until 9:30, but they already were and said they had not had a customer since 7:30 and it's too bad we didn't come earlier. It'd be nice if they posted that on the website! It was also really hard to find the place (maybe because it was... More

My husband took me there for Valentines Day Dinner. The only time they could fit us in was at 5:30. The place was not decorated for this holiday, No flowers on the table. Had lobster bisque and it was very runny with a tomatoe taste to it, it also was brought to the table with part of the soup on... More
